Oh boy, oh BOY, I just had to jot a quick note...
Tonight I cooked dinner...
...which I typically (prepare for a small tirade) do not like to do because I am lazy, uninterested, scared that it will taste like crap...whatever.
I CAN cook.
And the things I do, I do very well; but I am the baker in our house, HE'S the cook.
But tonight I wanted to surprise him with dinner; my poor Papi, working so hard to meet deadline.
I was at the grocery store today, picking up some more healthy YUMS and I happened across the asparagus section.
Now, I LOVE asparagus. MMMmmmmmmMMMMmmm MMM!
But I am picky about how it's cooked. Not mushy, not tooooo al dente. Just right.
Well, I bought some of that ol' asparagus, honestly thinking that HE would figure it out because that's what he does; hops online and in an hour we are dining ROYALE!
But as I traversed my day, I realized that I wanted to cook dinner tonight. I wanted to try to cook the asparagus. I've never, in all my 40 years, attempted to cook asparagus...
What in H E double hockey sticks is WRONG with me?
Don't answer that, we don't have time (it's movie night, ya know?).
So I went online, searched for the easiest (not going to lie) way, simply because it WAS my first time and I didn't want to mess it up too badly.
Long story just a tiny bit longer?
I made asparagus for the first time EVER.
And it was GOOD! I could just be saying that but Papi said it was, and I liked it; so anyone else would simply be out voted - besides, we ate it all up!
Chicken, roasted asparagus, and mashed sweet potatoes (gluten free, BTW).
Oh, and about the sweet potato fiasco?
Yah, I thought that a 1/2 cup wouldn't be enough. I had plenty of calories left for the day and so I loaded a whole cup onto my plate.
And then I promptly took half right back off and saved myself 110 calories!
...before I removed the excess sweets.
I'm full, he's full, and I am feeling pretty darn proud of myself; not gonna lie!
and what's this all weigh in at?
Yep, I know. SWEET!
Now to figure out what to do with 1100 extra calories - mmMMmm, celery and peanut butter anyone?
Okay, gotta run; it's my turn to choose the movie, tonight!
Till next time!
